American heavy rockers Eyehategod have officially cancelled their Australian tour, set for this week.

According to a Heathen Skulls announcement, the band failed to check in for their flights Down Under due to apparent complications at the airport. However, the band yesterday told fans on its Facebook page that it would not be touring Australia, blaming the promoter.

The cancelled shows include a Sydney date at The Hi-Fi this Saturday January 18.

The full Heathen Skulls statement reads:

“It’s with much regret that Eyehategod’s January Australian tour is to be cancelled.

With various complications relating to their flights, and not enough time left at check in to rectify the situation, the band wasn’t able to board their flight to Australia. Every effort was made to book the band new flights and get them out to Australia the following day, but at this late stage, with so little flights available, we have exhausted all possibility of salvaging the tour and getting the band back out to Australia. And we tried everything.

Because of this, the band has now scheduled additional US dates to replace the Australian tour. Apologies to the band and all those inconvenienced, most notably their fans, Heathen Skulls would have liked nothing more than to have continued the tour, but unfortunately, at this late stage, this was not to be the case

All refunds will be available via your point of purchase.”
